Manjunath (17) was stabbed to death near Railway quarters, Yeshwanthpur on July 10. Police said, the victim, from Mudalapalya, Vijayanagar, was a juvenile offender and had even undergone imprisonment.

The cops arrested Raghu (25), Umesh (21) and Satish Kumar (25), all residents of Channagiri in Davangere district. The three were into ice business and had push carts of their own.

During interrogation, the three revealed that Satish Kumar and Manjunath set out on a chain-snatching spree.

Since Satish owned a two-wheeler, Manjunath instigated him and the two took to crime. While they were on the prowl in K R Puram, they ran out of luck and were caught by the public. The duo managed to escape, leaving behind the vehicle.

With the help of vehicle registration number, the cops arrested Satish. In turn, the murder case surfaced. Satish explained that when he and Manjunath were chased by the police, he wanted to surrender, but Manjunath was not ready.

Instead Manjunath started blackmailing Satish. Scared of this, Satish informed about this to his relatives - Raghu and Umesh. The three decided to warn Manjunath and took him to Railway Quarters. But things turned ugly and the three eliminated Manjunath.
